OK - Sound quality. I did report a while back that the sound quality is fine. With my tin ears I'm probably the least qualified in this august crowd to comment on SQ. I wouldn't know bright from brash.
However, I will retract my earlier assessment and say that I feel this unit sounds excellent. But I think that is due to the great job the Audyssey EQ brought to the party. Prior, I thought I was an ace at HT set up but I guess this EQ can beat the best of us. I have this in a really odd ball room and what I thought was full surround, seamless, was thin in comparison to the all speaker contribution this unit has. For SQ, thumbs up.
Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.
